SYNOPSIS

Love is a circus

“Every day,” he says lowly, “I hold a person’s life in my hands. The circus is based one-hundred percent off of trust. I give it all to someone, and they give it all to me.”

The best aerial technique won’t land 21-year-old Thora James her dream role in Amour—a sexy new acrobatic show on the Vegas strip. Thora knows she’s out of her element the second she meets Amour’s leading performer. Confident, charming and devilishly captivating, 26-year-old Nikolai Kotova aggravatingly lives up to his nickname as the “God of Russia.”

When Thora unknowingly walks into the crosshairs of Nikolai’s after-show, her audition process begins way too soon. Unprofessional. That’s what Nik calls their “non-existent” relationship. It’s not like Thora can avoid him. For one, they may be partners in the future—acrobatic partners, that is. But getting closer to Nik means diving deeper into sin city and into his dizzying world.

Thora wants to perform with him, but when someone like Nikolai attracts the spotlight wherever he goes—Thora fears that she’s destined to be “just background” to his spellbinding show.

This sexy and exhilarating New Adult Romance can best be described as Cirque du Soleil meets the steamy, athletic romance of Center Stage.

*standalone & no love triangles—recommended for readers 18+ for mature content*

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter, #4)

SYNOPSIS

Sometimes wrong can feel oh so right . . . 

Jenna Lacombe needs complete control, whether it’s in the streets . . . or between the sheets. So when she sets out on a solo road trip to visit her family in New Orleans, she’s beyond annoyed that the infuriatingly sexy Jack Oliver wants to hitch a ride with her. Ever since they shared a wild night together last year, he’s been trying to strip away her defenses one by one. He claims he’s just coming along to keep her safe-but what’s not safe for her is prolonged exposure to the tattooed hottie.

Jack can’t get Jenna out from under his skin. She makes him feel alive again after his old life nearly destroyed him-and losing her is not an option. Now Jack’s troubles are catching up to him, and he’s forced to return to his hometown in Louisiana. But when his secrets put them both in harm’s way, Jenna will have to figure out how far she’s willing to let love in . . . and how much she already has.

My FEEEELINGS
So, Right Kind of Wrong!!!! 🙂 I really enjoyed this book because it was such an easy read! I zipped through it because every event that occurred drew me further into the book. The plot developed a lot as the book got into its middle and to the end, and I loved every moment of the reveals and twists. I really enjoyed it overall!!!
So, the main girl we have is JENNA! We were first introduced to Jenna in Best Kind of Broken when she’s seen as Pixie’s roommate, and now, we see her as the main. Jenna has a bunch of problems, her biggest one being about not being able to be in control of a situation. She has this plan for herself, and sometimes I got soooo frustrated with her for not just saying F you to the plan and skipping into happily ever after. But I understood why she did it. And even though sometimes she made me go like
Harry-Potter,
most of the time, I was grinning because of her sass and attitude, or just grinning because she was just such a supportive, strong, and kind person even when she was fighting herself and Jack.
As for JACK, our main guy, there was SO much that was going on. In the beginning, he seemed like the nice, alpha male types who just have success under their belt and good looks to go with it. But then, his issues get added on. And THEN we see him with his family. And by this point, I’m just like
Frustration
WHY CAN’T GUYS LIKE JACK BE REAL?!?!
So, basically he was hella fierce, and I enjoyed every second of his hotness, arrogance (heh.) and loving moments.
Right Kind of Wrong was a great read. I definitely enjoyed it, because I read it one sitting, and just wanted to go back and highlight the hell out of it 😉 This book is the third in the Finding Fate series, but it’s completely doable to read it as a standalone!!! 🙂 ❤

EXCERPT

 

His eyes dance as he watches my struggle. “What’s your plan here, Jenna? Haul me out of the car and leave me in the street?”

“Sounds good to me.”

“Well, that doesn’t sound friendly at all,” he says, flicking the lever to recline to seat a bit so he looks even more relaxed than before.

“I wasn’t trying to be friendly,” I grit out.

“Clearly.”

I try pulling him out again, to no avail. He’s giant and solid, and honestly, just touching him is turning me on.

I drop my hands and glower at him. “You can’t just tell me that you’re coming along on my road trip.”

He cocks his head. “Would you feel better if I asked?”

“Not especially.”

“Jenna.” He leans forward and his gaze bores through me, down into the deepest parts of my being. “Will you please let me join you on your trip to Louisiana?”

For a moment, I’m lost in his eyes, debating with myself. I don’t trust myself around Jack. Not at all. But I did spend half the night tossing in my sleep with nightmares about traveling alone so maybe having Jack tag along might not be so bad after all. Maybe.

Pulling back, I straighten my shoulders and relent, like usual when it comes to Jack.

“Fine,” I huff out as I stomp back to my side of the car in climb in. “But no talking,” I say, hoping I haven’t just made a huge mistake.

He grins and I turn away.

Surely I can manage to keep my panties on around Jack for a few days…right?

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter, #4)

SYNOPSIS

Taryn grew up in a different world. Her boyfriend was a criminal. His older brother was part of a gang. They weren’t great people, but they were her family. Then everything changes when she’s sent to a new family in the neighboring town. New family. New friends. A new world. She’s elated. This is her chance for a new beginning, but secrets start being revealed and Taryn learns her new life has some ties to her old one, ties that she’s not happy about. Her new family might not have been the lucky break she thought she had.

My FEEEELINGS
AH! Another AHMAZING read from Tijan!! I really enjoyed reading A Whole New Crowd for a multitude of reasons. It was well-paced and had everything I needed, from the annoying characters, to the confusing ones, to the heart-breaking ones. From the frustrating moments to the OHMYGOSH ones. I found a book boyfriend in Tray *sigh*
heh
and the crazy girl I love in Taryn.
They both made me feel like HOW? AW!!! OMG!! YAAS!! ugh…Basically,
me omg yes
Honestly, I loved a lot about this books. First, the plot was well done. It had a lot of twists, but not overly so. The beginning was a bit slow, but I appreciated that because the beginning is the gateway to the rest of the book, and the background needed to be set. I really liked the double life of the book, as it swung from Taryn’s old life to her new one, and back again. I loved seeing all the different sides of every single character, and somehow, Tijan made it happen. INCREDIBLE. 🙂
Tray and Taryn were a great couple. AWNC wasn’t overly romantic. It was just right. It was the perfect mix of drama, action, and romance. I fell in love with not only the characters but the entirety of the books 🙂
I ENJOYED THE ENTIRE THING, which I can not say for many books.
As for the characters, my favorite character would probably have to be Jase. He’s so mysterious, and there’s so many layers to him that I’m just dying to find out more about him. Plus, he’s so dang hot. HEHE
Anyways, I would definitely recommend this book. To all those Tijan lovers, this is another one of her fantastic reads that you just can’t stop until you hit the very last page. And to those who have not yet discovered her, GO! 🙂

TEASER ALERT

 

 

“She’s one of mine. She’s one of us.” He spread his arms out wide and raised his voice even louder. “We persevere. We’re the strong. We take on any circumstances and we still thrive. We’re going to keep thriving. Hell, we’re going to conquer. She’s got that rush in her and she won’t be satisfied with you. None of you. You just wait and see.” He looked down at me, his eyebrows lifted, as if seeing me for the first time. He fell back a step. Sweat was running down his face. He whispered to me, “I’ll wait for you, Taryn. I love you. You’re mine. No one else can take your place.”
Tears were rolling down my face. I ignored them.

RED HOT OBSESSIONS WAS SOME SERIOUSLY HOT STUFF. Just saying 😉

No, but honestly, theses short stories/mini-books were GREAT, because they ranged over every type of love story one could ever wish for. Every author took their own spin on these hot gorgeous boys and the witty and full-of-humor girls, and it was SUCH a great read. PLUS, I got to read 10 books in one shot. So, it was great.

Some of my favs? Were actually the first two I read. His Wicked Games and Fierce. I really liked these two the best because they had such great storylines, and made my heart pound, but they were completely different stories.

His Wicked Games is the adult love story, and it was so fun watching the main character, Lily, as she journeys her way through the man that is Calder, who was one FINE man. 😉 What I loved most about this story was that it didn’t oversell anything or anyone. The story ran very smoothly, and usually, when I read short stories, I sometimes feel as if the stories are forced and authors are clamoring to put huge story into less words, and that just annoys me at times. But His Wicked Games was really smooth in that Lily’s and Calder’s stories weren’t rushed at all. In fact, they took their time exploring each other and, even though I felt it was a litttle predictable ;), I still really enjoyed their story and YAY for happy endings 🙂 🙂 I would give it 3.5/4 STARS!

Next, we have Fierce, which was some seriously good reading material 😉 It follows the story of college freshman, Autumn who meets other college freshman, Hunter, but theirs isn’t the typical college romance, because Hunter is a bad boy. And when I say bad, I mean BAD. But, I mean bad boys are always the best right? 😉 Hehe. I actually really felt the chemistry between the two, and at times I was feeling for Autumn, because I was like, “What the hell is Hunter doing right now?!”, but it all worked out. The thing I liked most about Fierce? The intricately woven story. I had my doubts in the beginning, but it was a great ride. All the plot twists and events had me guessing until the very end and speaking, of the end, YAY! I absolutely loved the ending on Fierce. It was in no way abrupt. Rather, it brought the entire story to an end while bringing the entire story together and giving me and the rest of the audiences the closure needed 😉 It was a GREEAT ending and I LOVED LOVED LOVED HUNTER ❤ 🙂 I give Fierce 4 STARS!

All in all, Red Hot Obsessions was a great read! There were so many great characters and stories in one anthology and it was soooo much fun getting to see their stories play out and all of them come into their happy endings.
As a whole, I give it 4 STARS!!!! 🙂

  1. Olivia Rigal sings every Wednesday night in the karaoke club
  2. Olivia Rigal went to dog grooming school
  3. Lacey Silks had a passion for acting when she was a teen. As an extra she met Marlon Brando, Matthew Broderick, Ricky Lake, Brendan Fraser, Jerry O’Connell and Shirly MacLain
  4. Lacey Silks is afraid of flying. If you ever sit beside her on a plane, don’t mind the Hail Mary’s. And good luck getting to the bathroom. She will not unbuckle her seat belt through the entire flight
  5. Before she was an author, Ember casey worked as a pastry chef. She’s never met a cake (or puff pastry, or tart, or chocolate truffle) she didn’t love
  6. Ember Casey started writing Romance because her critique group kept telling her that her attempts at Young Adult were too, uh, “adult”
  7. J.C. Valentine is a reality TV junkie. The Kardashians hold her prisoner often and without mercy
  8. J.C. Valentine loves thunderstorms. They’re perfect for writing
  9. Clarissa Wild always drinks tea when writing, and she needs at least 2 cups of earl grey tea a day
  10. Like the main character in her book Fierce, Clarissa Wild is actually quite a book-nerd, and not just that … she loves playing videogames as well
  11. Sky Corgan actually participates in the BDSM lifestyle as a dominant
  12. Sky Corgan has to have complete silence while writing, so no coffee shop writing
  13. V.J. Chambers still watches The Vampire Diaries, and she’s still on Team Damon
  14. V.J. Chambers has a cat called Isis, and she does not like to relinquish the keyboard for her to actually write. She would rather lie on it
  15. Blair Babylon has lived in 5 US states: Arizona, Connecticut, Iowa, New Jersey and New York
  16. Blair Babylon was a child actor and model who did over 30 TV commercials and a short-lived PBS series
  17. During her tween years, Molly McLain began writing while listening to Wednesday night dedications and requests on radio. Since no one ever dedicated a romantic song to her, she made up her own love stories instead. To this day, all it takes to get the creative juices flowing is a little REO Speedwagon
  18. Molly McLain is a closet WWE fan. She may or may not fangirl over Randy Orton to the point her children refer to him as her boyfriend. They’re also kind enough to pause the TV when he’s on so she can drool
  19. Although Daizie Draper’s pretty kinky, she’s more of a switch than a straight-up sub. The BDSM in Sorority Pledge veers into many untested areas for her because Addison, the sub in the story, learns she’s masochistic, which I Daizie is not
  20. One of Daizie’s quirky things is that she hates crumbs, like stepping on them with her bare feet. It just irks her like nothing else

synopsis blog

It wasn’t exactly like spunky, photography student, Abbie Nartey ran away from her life…except, that she left under the cover of darkness and put three thousand miles between her and her ex-boyfriend’s betrayal. She went to London searching for her dream. She never expected to find love, or herself.

Heir to his family’s tech fortune, sexy, Alexi Chase, is looking for freedom—from his family and from his past. What he’s not looking for is love. With secrets like his, he can’t afford to let anyone get too close. But a chance rescue has him wondering if the price of keeping secrets is too high.

Will Alexi risk losing love to keep his past hidden? Will Abbie trust herself enough to love again? Or will their pasts keep then from accepting true love?

This book contains mature themes and is intended for audiences 18+

My Feelings!

London Bound was really a great read for me. It had everything I love. The hot boy. The beautiful girl. And the adventure, haunting pasts, and gorgeous supporting crew that make a book whole. Abbie and Lex were such a great couple, and their story was neither too fast nor too slow. It was just so right, and they were seriously made to be with each other, and I felt it.

AND SO, let’s start with Abbie. Who I adored btw 🙂 She was a girl caught up in a bad situation, and who had the guts to finally take her life into her own hands, and have the ability and strength to recognize what her true passion was. She basically followed her dreams to the other side of the world, and for that alone I already admired her. And I was only like 30 pages into the book. So, of course, she gets better and better, in my opinion. She is one levelheaded and strong girlie, but I think what got me the most was that she didn’t let her past dictate her present, and she let go of all her bad experiences to let herself discover what happiness was, and she found that with Lex. *SIGH* SO BEAUTIFUL ;’) Basically, their happy moments had me going like this for the entire time.. 😉

YYAYAYAYAYA friends.

Speaking of beautiful…and gorgeous…and hot…and BRITISH 😉 HAHA Lex was a great hero. He had the typically great looks and money, but he had the haunted past and the personal issues as well. For me, the only kind-of bummer was the predictability of the big dark secrets. I was pretty much able to piece together a lot of the twists from the book, and personally, I love me some surprises, so Lex’s story and all the reactions to it were not as poignant as they could have been. But other than that, I really enjoyed his relationships with everyone, especially Gemma and Xander, because it showed the depth of his loyalty and love for both of them *hint hint* HAHAH JK. no spoiler zone.

And of course, he totally fell head-over-heels for Abbie, and I definitely loved that part as well. Made me want my own happy ending. And in London, of course. I loved the banter, the straight-talking, and the pep talks that all the characters received from each other. I saw the family within the book, and for me, that is what makes a good book better: when the supporting characters really feel like a part of the story and everything and everyone comes together to make a perfect cast 🙂

All in all, I really enjoyed this read, and other than a few minor things, I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a dreams-comes-true or making-my-own-way read 🙂 It was seriously such a cute read and I loved Lex and Abbie the entire way, and I know you guys will too 🙂

3.5 BUTTERFLIES from me!

Synopsis

Amy has a secret: no one has ever held her hand. She doesn’t even know how to hug. Everybody thinks she’s brilliant, but that’s because school was all she had. Then she meets Dane, a golden-haired surfer whose easy charm and hot touch teach her what she longs to know.

Dane lives for the salty breeze and a sweet wave, because that’s all he has. He’s lived on the streets since he was fourteen. A drifter. Homeless. But Amy changes everything. Smart and accomplished, she’s everything he’s not. He wants to be the sort of man who deserves her.

Except that means facing down his past—and that past might very well swallow them both.

My Feelings!

How To Say Goodbye was a pure, heartwarming love story, and I really liked that about it! It was a book filled with its moments, but I think the only drawback for me was that it also had its really annoying moments. There were moments during the book where I just wanted to tell Dane and/or Amy GOD YOU TWO ARE PERFECTLY GOOD PEOPLE. YOU DESERVE EACH OTHER. DON’T PUSH. PULL.

LOL.Okay, sorry. 😉 Anyways, as for characters, they were pretty easily relatable. Both of them had not-so-pretty pasts, and both of them were allowing their pasts to haunt them. But for the first time, I felt the female lead was a lot stronger than the male lead. WHICH I TOTALLY LOVED. 😉 At the beginning, you begin to love Dane, and the fact that he slowly brings Amy out of her shell, and while she’s willing to come out and give him all she has. But, then I started to realized that he was taking a lot, and the moment anything of his past came up, he started to shut down. I was kinda mad that he wasn’t willing to do the same for Amy, and in a way, that made me dislike his character a little more. BUT, I did really enjoy Amy, because of her growth and constant willingness to step out of her comfort zone and put it all on the line. She is seriously one amazingly and innately good person, and I was immediately drawn to her and her warmth *sigh* She was so cute 🙂

And about the character backgrounds, I felt like there was a much deeper direction Amber Lin could have gone with the story, but I kind of regretted that she kept it a little too PG, and personally, there wasn’t enough angst to keep me with the story. The story was set a little too much around the main characters themselves, and I would have loved to get to know more about them through their relationships with other supporting characters, but I didn’t feel a lot of that happening. But FYI, whatever was going on between Amy and Dane, was fantastic because I was smiling every time they were together. They were one seriously perfect couple, when they were together. SIGH.

OKAY, so with everything, 3 BUTTERFLIES from me!

After a long career homeschooling she continued onward to pursue her love of books by writing her own books. Love Shots is her first novel released in 2014.
